The Bone Student Center opened in October 1973 and quickly became a hub of campus activity. There were minor changes over time, including the addition of international flags, shown above, but the facility needed to be upgraded. That work has been accomplished through the Bone Student Center revitalization project and the concourse improvement project, which took more than three years to complete. Designed to be more welcoming with an open design concept, the improved center offers places to dine, shop, socialize, and study. A third-floor atrium is used by the Office of Admissions to welcome prospective students, and the diversity of the University is celebrated by the new, digital international flags display. The modern yet warm atmosphere is a welcome change for the 5,000 daily visitors and organizers of the more than 4,500 events held annually at the facility named to honor President Robert Bone.
